Tried To Give Help Perhaps we have fallen short of doing all the things we could do and maybe we should do to improve the relations between Las Cruccs and White Sands Proving G r p u n d . Without a doubt there are other things we could do. On the other h a n d , of course, it is well lo t h i n k and remember some of Ihc things which are done and we al'e do- i n g or t h a t we have clone since White Sands Proving Ground became a m i l i t a r y installation. There is no question but t h i s c o m m u n i t y desires lo share in th, cpayroll at the W h i t e Sands. It desires t o ' e n j o y business from the Post as well as from thosc-Klationed at the Proving Ground. And, of course, we should 'be w i l l i n g to do certain things in order to share in this. * We k n o w t h a t the Chamber of Commerce has sought.in m a n y ways to build better relations; to improve the relations we have; and to show our interest as'a city and as citizens in W h i t e Sands Proving Ground. In m a n y instances the city of I.as Cruccs, the official family, has joined with the Chamber of Commerce in these undertakings. We know t h a t the Chamber of Commerce has served as a clearing house in a t t e m p t i n g to secure places for both army a n d ' c i v i l i a n personnel to live in our city. It has been extra work and extra e f f o r t , but h u n d r e d s have been helped to flnil a place' lo live. The office of the civic organization is slUJ carrying out this project. *'We know that various types of entertainments have been sponsored and carried out to honor the officials of White Saflds Proving Ground. Much aid and help was given by the Chamber of Commerce in the discussions over the securing ,..., ,. ,, ,,,,,.,.,, ,,..,,.,,, of the use of the entire, area In the W h i t e Sands Proving youths to take their place in the Gr.otjnd. The Chamber of Commerce took a determined s t a n d ' f i e l d of oduit activity OH m\ nii- Loeal Columbians Rated Highly In WorJd Standings Tile Lao Cruets Bishop Lmny Circle of Columbian Ko,nircH have been notified that they have been Â·ankcd in l l t h place in the Feb- Â·uary International rutlnRs.

The prlmnry purpose of the Columbian Squires, a Cutholic organization, t.s the ( r a i n i n g of young boyn in t h r development of 1ml- ancetl personality iiml leadership. Thla is accomplished by means of monthly programs of spiritual, cultural-educational, civic, social physical activities, preparing these around developed individual.

The Mes'illa'Valley Chamber of Commerce with the cooper;it(on of t h e . c i t y secured a tract of land, arranged for all u t i l i t i e s to be provided ami offered this to the government foil the, houses which were later erected at W h i t e Sands. They sent delegations to Washington to offer their proposal and even established t h r o u g h engineering surveys that the housing project could be constructed here approximately 25 percent cheaper t h a n at W h i t e Sands. I t was later decided that it would be more convenient to have the houses at W h i t e Sands. And t h a t , nf course, was a sound n r g u n i f h i .

It -is also true t h a t some three housing projects' with p r i v a t e c a p i t a l have and are being carried out here and iil- tlfongh these are not rent houses some of the civilian and army personnel have purchased these homes. The buying of t h e ' h o m e s by others has made other housing available here for the personnel. Las Cruces is no more able to provide housing fÂ»r thu t a k i n g care of the army or c i v i l i a n personnel than any o t h e r c o m m u n i t y its size might be able to do.
